At this session we will meet the riverkeepers who support Melbourne’s waterways.
The Yarra Riverkeeper, Andrew Kelly, and the Werribee Riverkeeper, John Forrester, will tell us of the voluntary work they do, from enhancing the health of the waterways to minimising or collecting rubbish.
As the population of Melbourne balloons and demands for open spaces grow, our rivers are coming under increasing pressure.
“We advocate for the rivers: for green spaces, for water quality, for biodiversity, for the birds, animals, insects and reptiles along the rivers, for good planning decisions, for the tributaries, for the parklands, for appropriate recreation; and for an understanding of our river and its role in the life of the city of Melbourne. We lobby governments and we educate the community. We tell the story of the rivers.” (Andrew Kelly)
This Afternoon Coffee, Cake and Talk event will be held at the Auditorium at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Victoria, Cranbourne, on Sunday 23 June 2019, 2pm to 3.30pm.
